Women to make historic UFC debut

Women to make historic UFC debut

Ronda Rousey has an Olympic judo medal, a commanding presence and a string of victories in her short mixed martial arts career.

Now she’s got a showcase worthy of her talent.

Rousey and Liz Carmouche will make history Saturday night in Anaheim, Calif., when they meet in the first women’s bout in UFC history.

“I feel like the brighter the lights are, the better I can see,” Rousey said. “I feel like I’m the most capable person, and I should do whatever I can to make it happen.”

They’re the main event at UFC 157. It’s a remarkable rise for Rousey, a bronze medalist at the Beijing Olympics who picked up MMA before her pro debut in March 2011.

Rousey is a huge favorite to retain the UFC women’s bantamweight belt.
